I've imported vector layers from map info pro to both SQL server and post gis using easy loader. In both cases I've included style column in the exported table. When I create new store in geoserver and see the list of layers , each layer has the mi_style column in the list of features at the bottom of the screen . But when I publish the layer it still have the default style of geoserver . How can I set it to read the style from the column ?

The mi_style column is only for MapInfo use, I don't think GeoServer will know what to do with it. – Nathan W Dec 3 '12 at 5:16
Maybe there is option to create sld from it ? – Alophind Dec 3 '12 at 5:31
I have never heard of a way, but happy to be proven wrong. – Nathan W Dec 3 '12 at 5:46
